Thrift Inspiration, From Selfridges Kate Moss Style

On our outing to London on Sunday, we had a nice browse around Selfridges and I came across the book section within their WH Smith concession. The array of Fashion and Style books was amazing, I could have pitched up on a sofa for the rest of the day, lol!!

The book that grabbed my eye was Kate Moss Style by Angela Buttolph. I had a flick through and liked what I saw, but sadly didn't feel like parting with the full book price of £19.99 for it.

So I was very pleased to win it on ebay last night for only £2.2o-thats more like it and the seller is going to send it by recorded delivery so I can track it-I get virtually all my purchases sent by recorded delivery from ebay now as for the extra pence, you're generally guaranteed delivery of your item this way.

I saw via Amazon there are good reviews for the book, I'm a fan of Kate Moss anyway and her style and although the book is a couple of years old, for less than the price of my monthly Vogue or Elle, it was worth buying!!

What Style book is on your radar-that you have already or intend on purchasing?

Dear Sharon, I find buying books on Ebay or secondhand on Amazon by far the best way.

I don't have this book but have wanted it for ages. I shall keep my eye out for a copy.

I try and have all my Ebay stuff sent recorded, you can do second class recorded now for next to nothing. I can't believe your marabou jacket didn't turn up. How irritating. I had a frenzy on there on Sunday (I put it down to the hangover) I must blog the stuff when it arrives xx

Excellent purchase. I have much too many books on my wish list, I keep adding but never buy any so it just keeps growing! All the ones I want don't seem to be going cheaply on ebay so I just keep holding out for the day when they aren't so popular ;) x

What a brilliant buy, my dear! I love kate Moss and even though others maon about her being on every magazine cover I never get tired of looking at her.
I haven't browsed Amazon for ages, I think I'll go and do that now. xxx

Great price, Sharon. I just received the Isabella Blow biography. Can't wait to start reading it!

Ooooh! I never knew there was such a book. I'd love a peek inside miss moss's wardrobe. Serious clothing envy ;)

Kind regards

I know who she is but I do not think I have paid much attention to her fashion. I bet that will be an interesting book ~Enjoy reading it! I just purchased a book of Ebay from Japan it is filled with sewing patterns...I wonder how long it will take to receive it? ~Love Heather

That's great, I still want this book as well! But I have quite the wishlist at the moment.. I should check ebay :)

I usually, like to get a new crochet book this time of year..but I finally found a wonderful slouchy hat I purchased online. Its so cool, but I'm afraid to wear it anywhere on account I might lose it. So I've made quite a few in the last 2 weeks. I just made up the pattern. I really like my cherry red slouchy hat.

Hi everyone-thanks for all your lovely comments, to let you know the book is a fabulous read, well worth it if you adore Kate Moss and her style and I certainly would recommend it too! xx

Pearl Westwood said...

Ive got this book, it is really interesting as it goes into real depth about things in Kate's life which have influenced her style. I got mine off either amazon or ebay, I never pay full price for books anymore x
